Arts Alliance Media (AAM), the London-based digital cinema company, and Molinare have entered into an agreement to partner in offering Arts Alliance Media’s digital cinema services to Molinare’s post-production clients. The move will see producers being offered a seamless end-to-end service from preproduction through to theatrical release.
AAM, which has provided digital cinema content and distribution services to clients throughout Europe since 2006, will work with Molinare to provide services such as DCP (Digital Cinema Package) creation and reversioning for different territories, along with a full QC service in either of its two fully equipped digital cinemas, in London and Paris. The collaboration/combined services offering will also provide AAM clients the chance to benefit from a full managed post production service with Molinare.
Services available will also include distribution to cinemas globally – including the option of satellite transmission direct to cinema servers, or the alternative of distribution on hard drive or USB. AAM will also provide a full security key (KDM) management service to ensure content can only be unlocked by a specified cinema screen at the specified time.
Scott Holmgren, Molinare’s Chief Operating Officer, commented “Being able to offer this final step of digital cinema asset creation and distribution means that we can now offer our customers a totally integrated workflow through to getting their product to cinemas. Arts Alliance Media’s experience in the digital cinema world is unparalleled and we’re delighted to be working with them and looking forward to the new services we’re going to have on offer.”
Victoria Galloway, Content & Distributor Services Director of Arts Alliance Media added “Working as a partner with Molinare means that we can get involved with clients at an earlier stage and help them to plan requirements for their cinema release anywhere in the world, with everything from trailers to the final feature in different versions. We were impressed with the fantastic service Molinare provide to their clients, and the reputation they have for technical excellence, and we’re excited to work with them to bring the efficiencies and quality of digital cinema to more filmmakers.”
